Re: E-bike + downhill frame + Mxus hub motor + 24s lipo

Hey Luis, that's a lot of nice shiny beautiful new parts. I'm really looking forward to seeing this go together. I have my Trek 4300 torn apart and getting ready for powdercoating. I'm hoping to do a build with a aluminum battery box with the carbon wrap like yours. Hope you had a Merry Christmas, a...

Re: Vintage GT Palomar BBS02 BMX Klunker

Take care of those MultiStars, they are no longer available. Of course the smaller bricks can be replaced with high-value 25C Turnigys, but the big bricks, like your 10 Ah are hard to find and cost an arm and a leg. Hey Moto, yeah I noticed. I still have 3 16aH 6S packs and 2 16aH 4S packs. Gonna h...

Re: Vintage GT Palomar BBS02 BMX Klunker

The GT just hit 1100 miles the opther day and I figured it was time for an update. Since the last post I've added a Lekkie 36T bling ring and 170 mm buzzbars to the BBS02. These 2 improvements are probably my favorites yet. The Lekkie parts are beautifully designed and machined and really seem to up...

Re: The downside of more electric bikes

I guess I'm really lucky, my LBS is happy to work on my DIY bikes. I always remove the battery and any other heavy accessories, and ALWAYS drop a few bucks in the shop's tip jar/beer fund. I do most of my own maintenance, but occasionally bring stuff in for things that require specialized tools.

Help with 500c display

Hey everyone, need some help here. The 500c display is my favorite because it's small and function is high.

Re: Bafang BBS01/Gazelle/Shimano Auto D

Welcome to ES dude, thanks for posting. I won't rain on your parade and tell you everything is shit. Beautiful bike, the battery should mount on the downtube, either on water bottle mounts, or you can use clamp-on bottle bracket mounts. The mid-drive should mount up nicely, aftermarket chain guards ...

Re: How do I size the proper mid-drive for off road use?

Blue bike is the new donor bike. Just need help in deciding to go to the 750w 48v - 1200w 52v BBSH02 option OR should I go with the BBSHD 1000w 48v - 1500w 52v option? Good morning.

Re: Schwalbe Super Moto-X Tires

I've only put about 150 miles on them so far, but I am VERY happy with them. For my purposes 45 PSI (3.1 BAR) gives a grippy, fast and pretty quiet ride. Run at a little lower pressure, it becomes a supple roller that soaks up the little stuff. I've run Maxxis Holy Rollers, Schwalbe Marathons, Schwa...

Re: Step by step evolution of a 1st ebike conversion

Well the Trek has been out of service for a long time. I had good intentions when trying out the 84V at 90A WCEC controller with my Crystalyte HS3580. Something blew and I just didn't have the interest to pursue it. I bought my first BBS02 soon afterwards and I'm definitely preferring mid-drives now...

Re: Vintage GT Palomar BBS02 BMX Klunker

Update to the post/blog for this super fun bike. My old clunky 7 speed rear deraileur ate a stick on the way home from work the other day and was beyond saving. My LBS has a nice new Acera on the shelf for $10 cheaper than Amazon and I think it suits the bike really well. The Schwalbe Super Moto-X t...

Re: 20" BMX Front Hub Build

Great first post dude, seems like a really cool and different idea. I'm looking forward to seeing how it goes. The one possible downside is battery weight increasing the amount of steering effort and changing the center of gravity enough to really change handling. You won't know until you try it tho...

Re: Charger Recommendation for 24V or 36V batteries

Maybe you can benefit from my experience here.... I've run different bikes at several different voltages (48-84V) and have repeatedly gone for the "circuitboard in a piece of rain gutter with a fan" chargers. In the four years I've been doing ebikes, I think I've bought 7 or 8 different ch...

Re: Is DIY dying?

I don't think DIY will ever die, just my humble opinion. There will always be people who look at something and think, "I could make that better." As far as ebikes, DIY will persist because I think it will be a looooong time before the factory ebikes can meet the DIY sector's dollar per wat...

Hey Luis, so glad to see a new post from you. Cool new shop space, looks like a great place to tinker and create. I'm really looking forward to seeing how the build goes together, and like the idea of the BMC at 3.6 kW. This'll be fun. Cheers from N. California.
